Riding with your hands behind your head?

Monday, June 24, 2002 5:12 PM

I just got back from an AWESOME Cp trip and I was wondering why some people put there hands behind their head and elbows out. What kind pose/test is this? I really don't understand and ask me for a pic and I'll show you. Of course putting your shirt over your head is way better than this relaxed pose.

I often ride like that on SFGAm's Raging Bull. It's a comfortable position on a relaxing ride.

I just started riding Apollo's Chariot like that. Very comfortable and very relaxing.

I sometimes ride Inverts with my hands held behind the column supporting the seat.

It appears that these people are too relaxed......I'll try that this Sunday on Bull, but I may doze off! My hands are usually busy choking others for the on-ride photo.

I have ridden like this on the Tig'rr at Indiana Beach. I do it because there are no restraints on the Tig'rr and just to show that I am brave enough to never grab the bars. I watched someone else do it first and got the idea. There are signs that tell you to brace yourself for sharp turns.

I have an on ride photo of myself on the Bull at night, w/ the guy behind me w/ his hands behind his head, he does look quite relaxed...next year when I go back to SFGAM maybe I'll have to try it.
